About the Book:
Sirens, many-headed dragons, maidens trapped in the bodies of wolves. The legends that young Voran has loved from childhood suddenly come alive, and some of them are worse than nightmares. Most horrifying is the Raven, a formless spirit who can possess the bodies of his victims.
But Voran has a secret hope -- he knows where to find the Living Water, a mysterious panacea that alone can rid the land of the Raven. Leaving love and home behind, Voran seeks the Living Water, pursued at every step by an enemy that never shows the same face twice.
Voran overcomes hags, wolf-men, excruciating physical ordeals to become a warrior equal to the greatest of the legends. As the Raven closes in, Voran realizes that the power of the Living Water remains dormant until the ultimate sacrifice is made - a life for a life. He is faced with an impossible choice - to attack the Raven openly and risk defeat, or to save his people, and die in the process.

I would especially appreciate feedback on the first few pages. Do they grab the reader or do they stink of amateur writing? Please be honest in your assessment. Thank you all!
